Mount Keira is a mountain four kilometres from Wollongong, New South Wales. The 462-metre tall mountain is a known landmark because of its proximity to the city. Most of the mountain is forested with civilisation gathering on the lower slopes. Tourists flock to Mount Keira because of its spectacular views of the city from the summit lookout, which was constructed in 1955 by the Rotary Club of Wollongong. The summit also has views of the Blue Mountains in the far west and of the sea to the east. Another attraction for nature lovers is the Mount Keira Walking Track. The track is about 5.5 kilometres for a round trip and features the rainforest and many species of unique Australian animals along the way.
